Celebs React to Caitlyn Jenner's Coming Out & Not Everyone Is a Fan

Caitlyn Jenner was introduced to the world on Monday, June 1, with a glamorous cover shoot for Vanity Fair by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Celebs from all walks off life were quick to comment, and while most were congratulatory, there were a few jabs that were less than kind.

One of my personal favorite reactions was Rob Kardashian's, as he didn't even recognize his former step-father. According to Kim Kardashian, she sent a mass text of the cover, and Rob apparently responded, "Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman? And why do I care?" He was quick to gush about Caitlyn as soon as he figured it out though.

Other non-related celebrities also praised Caitlyn's stunning transition. Take a look at what some of her famous supporters said in response to her official "coming out."

Heck, even President Obama praised Caitlyn for having the courage to share her story.

Not everyone was singing her praises though. Drake Bell tweeted (and later deleted) a comment that many considered transphobic. The former Nickelodeon star wrote, "Sorry ... still calling you Bruce."

Timbaland posted this graphic to Facebook and got people in an uproar:

Geraldo Rivera likened Caitlyn to Kris Humphries for some strange reason.

Despite some of the negative comments, Caitlyn seems to be taking it in stride. She tweeted her gratitude for so much support just hours after joining Twitter on Monday:

Congrats to Caitlyn -- there's no bigger or better freedom than choosing to live with authenticity.
